ESPN sources called it a "flat-out brawl."
Josh Smith won't play against the Brooklyn Nets tonight because he was suspended for "conduct detrimental to the team."

Eagles end up getting their first choice in Chip Kelly. When these contract details come out, expect the numbers to be gargantuan.

Chip Kelly hire played out lot like Nnamdi sweepstakes (mystery, shock, etc). Hope it works out better for Eagles this time
